“Looking ahead to our 2 shows with Mochipet this week in San Diego and Los Angeles, we set up an interview with him and we also included a few of your fan questions. Check out the full interview below and be sure to get your discount pre-sale tickets to the shows in San Diego or Los Angeles today!

Do LaB: Thanks for taking the time to talk with us. Let’s start by having you tell us about your new album and the new live tour.

Mochipet: “The new Live show is an ever expanding project I started working on this year. I basically got tired of doing the Ableton Live / DJ thing that’s become so prevalent today so I started incorporating more instruments, visual projections, and other secret gadgets to my set. With Music as the basis I’m trying more avenues for my creativity. Because it’s a ever changing project, every show / tour will be different. I hope to incorporate the interactive portion into the show later this year which I am very excited about.”

Do LaB: What was your inspiration for the new album? How do you think it fits into your catalog of tunes?

Mochipet: “‘Rawr Means I Love You’ is a series of songs I wrote the past year and a half on tour. It encompasses many genres and styles. It’s almost like a compilation but I spent a good amount of time making sure it was cohesive and not just a bunch of songs lumped together. You can check it out here: http://bit.ly/rawr_out“”

“Do LaB: What is the live show like? We’ve seen some video and photos of the new dinosaur heads and lighting rig.

Mochipet: “For this tour we are doing songs from “Bunnies and Muffins,” “Rawr Means I Love You,” and several new unreleased tunes. We incorporated several different projection mapped shapes and custom visuals for each of the songs. I also have a drummer alone side many instruments I’m playing myself including a Malletkat, Guitar, and Kitara. And yes, of course there is some Godzilla in the mix as always.”

Do LaB: What is the main difference for you as performer from a live show vs a solo show?

Mochipet: “There is a ton more production that goes into the live show then a solo live PA set. I’m am singing and playing a lot of the instruments live so it will be different at every show. It is all original material and there will be no DJing involved.”

Do LaB: How did you link up with Zoogma?

Mochipet: “I first heard about Zoogma when I was on tour opening for STS9 in Oxford Mississippi. Since then, we managed to link up and do a SE tour together earlier this year. Now they are coming to open up for me on their first West Coast Tour. I’m very excited for them.”

Do LaB: What can fans look forward to at our two upcoming shows in San Diego and Los Angeles?

Mochipet: “Lots of Pets.”

“Do LaB: We also asked your fans for some questions. Here they are…

Will asked: “If electronic music didn’t exist, what other outlet would you utilize to affect the masses?”

Mochipet: “I would probably find someway to use my last name ‘Wang.’”

Luis asked: “Where did you get the name Mochipet?”

Mochipet: “From my Grandmother in Taiwan. She use to tell me to make “Mochipet’s” to shut me up.”

Anthony asked: “Where can I get myself a Mochipet Dino Head?”

Mochipet: “I will sell you mine for the right price in Tokyo.”

“We’d like to thank Mochipet for letting us into his world, and we hope you’ll join us in either San Diego or Los Angeles for Mochipet Live, including performances from Zoogma, Osal8 and Air Stegosaurus.

Get your discount pre-sale tickets for San Diego or Los Angeles.”

Our friend Dylan Just sent us this documentary of  Blek Le Rat  Stencil Pioneer in France and there was some Daly City Stencils spotted around (21:55 – 21:59).  We are proud to be represented here <3

British graffiti artist Banksy has acknowledged Blek’s influence stating “every time I think I’ve painted something slightly original, I find out that Blek Le Rat has done it as well, only twenty years earlier.”[7] The two have expressed mutual desire for collaboration; in 2011, Blek was seen adding to a mural begun the previous year by Banksy in the Mission District, San Francisco.[8]

Mochipet on Autonomous Music’s Va-Array Vol. 2

Va-Array Vol 2 (Autonomous Music – Free DL!)

Posted by cassetteblog | December 4, 2012 | No Comments
Translated by Bing

Autonomous Music is the type of projects that should exist in a heap. This organization uses music and performances live from an impressive list of artists as a tool for social change. Art as a hammer that hits the nail of the meanings.

His proposal is specifically political, and if you know even at some of the names of the musicians involved you will see that everything is more than real, that are putting force into a target clear and thus are making an important contribution. The roster is composed by Dj Vadim, Filastine, Quantic, Mochipet, Natasha Kmeto, The Polish Ambassador, Resident Anti-Hero, Octopus Nebula, Ott, Ott & The All-Seeing I, Ill-Esha, Emancipator, Alex B, Anomie Belle, Blietech, Conduits, Cry Wolf, Dr Israel, Etheric Double, Intelepaths, Invisible Allies, Little People, Marley Carroll, Papadosio, Paper Diamond, Paper Tiger, Phutureprimitive, Pnuma Trio, Random Rab, The Great Muandane, The Nadis WarriorsYppah and Unlimited Gravity.

Last November 28 have released their second compilation for so-called free descent “Array Vol 2″, which contains tracks from all of their artists.” As it is logical, because the reason that unites all of these names is not a musical line but an eagerness in common, styles that handles are the most heterogeneous. On this album they may listen to hip hop, house, future step, indie hop, IDM, synth hop, trip hop, dubstep, reggae dub, techno pop and electro. But mysteriously this stylistic explosion runs evenly. The disk draws a journey that will unveil the adventure of track in track.

A very good album with a very good proposal back.”

Jonah Brown (AKA Th’ Mole): LOGFATHER

Jonah Brown

Following the recent release of Th’ Mole & Friends: Love In The Chaosphere, an uncharacteristically mature and artful album for the psychedelically-styled MC/producer, comes the completely juvenile side-project, Jonah Brown: Logfather.  Featuring guest MC’s Myka 9, Ngafsh & Wormhole, the 18 tracks consist entirely of braggadocious battle rhymes in a style reminiscent of the Beastie Boys, but instead of the traditional subject matter (rhyme skills, money, sexual prowess) Jonah and cohorts rap strictly about… poop.

Although one Amazon reviewer whines, “Seriously? A weak-ass rapper wastes his time and $ making a recording about sh*t and really expects people to buy it?” others disagree. Another review contends, “Jonah Brown’s debut on Daly City Records is confusing, creative, awe inspiring and funny. It’s also very well produced…”  Meanwhile Th’ Mole’s press release eloquently states that “Jonah Brown aims to subvert a universal taboo, placing all cultures and classes on common ground via this embarrasing bodily function. In addition the project is a reaction to the pomposity and self-aggrandizement commonly displayed in hip hop culture.”

Decide for yourself what you think of the Logfather by listening at soundcloud.com/motionrecordings, where you can also download the lead single, “The Doody Dance” for free.  Purchase the entire release for $8.99 at Amazon.

Mochipet Featured on Cassette Blog

Posted by cassetteblog | May 15, 2012  |

Vamos a arrancar con toda la fuerza del espíritu africano, ese ser golpeado que indiferente a la afrenta continúa festejando a puro el ritmo y alegría. Que mejor manera de encarar el martes con la reversión de sonidos de África que hacen los The Busy Twist, dúo de UK que produce una peculiar y equilibrada mezcla entre sonidos bass y folklore del continente negro.

Les compartimos “Floor Excitement EP”, su última edición, y el track “Ldn Luanda”, el cual han liberado hace poquito para bajada gratuita.
Ya que estamos revisando la visión electrónica de los ritmos africanos, vamos a visitar a Paris a Dj Mo-Laudi y le robamos de su soundcloud dos tracks buenísimo. El primero, es el remix que hizo de “Yapa”, de Le Pas Sage. Bella pieza melancólica, como la foto de un lugar colorido en el cual todavía el hombre habla con la tierra. Y “Secousse” de Secousse All stars, un kuduro energético como para ponerse a saltar.

Luego cambiamos de latitud, y nos vamos a escuchar la tremenda colaboración que han compuesto Mc Zulu y Mochipet, dos artistas que admiramos. Han llamado ska bass a este extraño estilo que producen en “Year of The Dragon (Ska Rmx)”… y si, puede ser…. la cuestión es que nunca nos hubiéramos imaginado la voz de Mc Zulu sobre un track tan rocker… y ¡menos a Mochipet haciendo esa base! Como sea, festejamos el desprejuicio de estos amigos, por que gracias a ello han producido un track veraniego que va a estar sonando en nuestras cabezas por varios meses.

Miren bien dentro de la info debajo del track (entrando en soundcloud), por que allí hay un link para bajarlo gratis.

Para cerrar dubeando, les compartimos la última edición de Urban World Records, sello de mirada mundial que continua con sus lindas y eclécticas ediciones. Ahora le ha tocado a “Less Corruption Remixes EP” de Love Avalanche feat MC BenJammin. El EP está compuesto por el track original, un regaaaaaaaaazo contundente con aire old school, y varios remixes. Las versiones pasan por varias rítmicas, como digital dancehall, moombahton, champeta, digital dub, dubstep, drum & bass y otras mutaciones. Entre los remixers podrán encontrar nombres de artistas que suenan seguido en Cassette: ACEtone Studio, Bigote, David Superpendejo, Andres Digital, Triplet Trix, DJ Trece y Paul Damerau.
